Also if we're expecting to not finish on time we have to tell the don roughly 2 hours ahead at 7 or 8 oclock. Otherwise we stay and don't get paid.

But I got paid from the time I clocked in until the time I clocked out, a dollar more on sundays, and a shift differential on weekends if I closed the deli there.
